And In the Mornin'.....I'm Makin' Waffles!! Heart Shaped Waffles to Be Exact!
My apologies to the movie franchise, but I just couldn't resist!
So today is day 147 for Tulip and Star, and we are waiting on pins and needles..........ok, maybe just me, but I'm really excited for these babies to get here and very thankful to my Savior that He allowed them to wait possibly until the weekend when I'll be home from work..........of course they may not kid until next week, but I'm remaining optimistic!
I got up this morning and went out to do chores, then came in and decided that waffles were on the menu for breakfast!
So I got out my trusty waffle iron and got to work!
The Man and I bought this at an antique store a long while ago. I paid a lot for it, but it's been worth every penny and will still be in condition to make waffles looooong after I've gone home to my Lord!
So first thing you do is set your waffle iron down on your burner and turn it on medium low heat....
Then once it's good and hot, like it will sizzle if you throw a couple drops of water on it, you take a pastry brush or something and grease it really good with lard or bacon grease. I'm using bacon grease this morning.
Then you put your batter in your hot, greased waffle iron.
And you close the lid. Here comes the first disclaimer. See that little white bubble of batter? That is because I put too much in the waffle iron and it bubbled out. Not a big deal, but if you way over fill it, you can quickly have a bit of a mess on your hands! Let this cook for about 3-4 minutes, depending on how you like your waffles done, and then you grasp the handles and quickly flip the whole shebang over to cook the other side, which brings me to the second and most important disclaimer...
There is a VERY real danger of fire with this type of operation. When you are greasing the waffle iron and when you flip it, the grease can drip down on your burner and will ignite. You CANNOT leave this unattended while you do other stuff. You need to be standing there so if a flame spurts up you can blow it out, or otherwise extinguish it. It happens every time I make these, and I just blow it out and keep going......
When your waffle is done cooking on both sides, you open the lid to reveal this glorious-ness! Then you take a fork and lift the waffle out and put it in a covered casserole or on a plate to stay warm while you cook the rest of your waffles....
The you plate them up and eat them........
I recommend a couple fried quail eggs and a strip of bacon
Put the left over waffles in the freezer and you can pop them in the toaster or heat them up in the oven for next time!
Well I'm off, we have a very busy day today which I'll be blogging about this week.
Hopefully we'll also have GOAT BABIES by Sunday evening.....
Till next time!
